Plan-based Assistance in the Webbrowser Firefox

T.A. Bertz and P. Reiss (Germany)


HMI, Planning, Application


We present a developed function library named pbifSys tem which will allow for remote control of the webbrowser Firefox. Instead of controlling the browser through gen eral pc input devices such as mouse or keyboard, we will use functions of the library. The developed pbifSystem is meant to be a service layer that can be used by assis tance systems. The service offered appears in the pbifSys tem as planning an action sequence and visually executing it single-handed, which is appropriate for reaching the re quested goal by the user (e.g. Increase to enlarge the font of a currently shown website). To demonstrate pbif System’s mode of operations without assistance system, a toolbar (pbifBar) was built.
